IAAF says it spends more than UCI in anti-doping fight

first_imgMONACO (AP):The International Association of Athletics Federations says it spends more money than cycling’s governing body, Union Cycliste International (UCI) in the fight against doping.A day after two-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome recommended that athletics invest more to fight doping, the IAAF said it spent more than $2 million on its 2014 anti-doping programme while cycling’s governing body “spent approximately 1.1 million” Swiss francs (US$1.1 million) in 2013.Citing World Anti-Doping Agency figures, the IAAF said it performed more than 25,000 tests in 2014, compared to cycling’s 23,000.Earlier this month, two anti-doping scientists who reviewed data obtained by media outlets suggested blood doping was widespread in track and field. They compared the IAAF’s current doping problems with those faced by professional cycling 20 years ago when the use of the blood-booster EPO was common practise.last_img read more
